Morris Animal Refuge in Philadelphia posted online looking for someone to adopt BeeJay, or “Mr. B” for short.

Mr. B is just 2 years old, but he weighs 26 pounds. The shelter said he’s a big cat with a big heart.

“Adopt this jumbo-sized package of fluff & love, and help this sad-eyed guy find happiness!” they wrote.

Their tweet describes Mr. B. as a “chonk,” which Urban Dictionary defines as an “aggressively chubby housecat.”

The shelter gave an update on Friday, writing: “We are overwhelmed by the number of wonderful people ready to give Mr. B his fur-ever home. We are excited to find him a home soon, but he’s not quite ready to go home yet. He still needs a more thorough check up by our vet. We will announce as soon as he’s ready to go!"

If Mr. B is too far away for you, there are plenty of beautiful felines here in Ouachita Parish looking for fur-ever homes!

Just head on over to the River City Humane Society for Cats website here and take a look at all the kitties in need of a family.

If you can't take one into your home, you can also donate or volunteer by caring for cats or taking them to vet appointments.
